Too Short 2: Ya do nothing, no one get's hurt
30 April 2017 | by brian-30039See all my reviews

When I heard about that two main characters were gonna do nothing in any situation, I was not surprised about it at all, This concept has been done before many times, but when I saw the short itself, It did something unique,

1. It had a mixture of Flash and Stop motion

2. It made the characters do something for the fate of the universe.

When I first saw the opening scene of this, it made me wonder, how does Dudley and Nestor survive all of this? Maybe luck, or that they are powerful demigods that can survive any disaster by doing nothing, they don't even have to do anything about the problem, they survive every accident. Anyway, Dudley and Nestor then have other threats in which their powers don't work on, The Kodama Twins, Are they good Characters?

The answer is, yes, they are what Dudley and Nestor need in order to do something about the problem, They are the straight women in which Dudley and Nestor can listen too whenever they Do Nothing. So Dudley and Nestor then have only one scenario that they have to do in order to enter in the space station, Drink up Dudley's Soda. It leads to a major plot detail that brings up possibility, Nestor trying to send Dudley to the Restroom yet goes to all the madness and mayhem to find the bathroom. It's one of those Scenario type of cartoons in which one character tries to accomplish a task yet is over pushed by obstacles, and they did it real well, One of the most iconic scenes was when Dudley and Nestor Did a guitar solo, it made me laugh real hard. The only criticism I have is why didn't Dudley and Nestor just asked the Teacher in a different approach, like asking, then Mr Whizzy or whoever he is can let them wander to the rocket, and why was it in Flash animation, I have no problem with Flash animation, Especially in this short, it still feels Stopmotion, but used in flash. Flash Animation is a tool in which you can make characters move fluently without too much of work yet it takes work to do it, here the flash looks great, but what made life with loopy great is because it used a mixture of 2D and 3D stop motion, I mean the Dudley and Nestor short looks great, but the 3D/2D stop motion of Life with Loopy was more creative, but either way, Dudley and Nestor Did Nothing to offend me;
